'Same text background' color should highlight same data in same row, not only same column as selected cell #707
Steps to reproduce this issue
The cells from the other rows in the same column with the same data as currently selected get highlighted as expected, but the cells in other columns, but in the SAME row with the SAME data do not get highlighted as expected.
Here the cells with '2' in other rows and same column get highlighted, but the cells with '2' in the SAME row don't get highlighted, they remaing with the 'selected row' gray background color.
All the cells in the same ROW and COLUMN with the same data as the current selected cell should be highlighted. i.e. among the 'cross' formed by the current row and column
Just guessing, maybe the option correctly detects same data, but when it attempts to paint them, the 'selected row' background gets a higher priority and overrides the "same text background" color.
i.e. the 'same text background' color should have higher priority over the currently selected row, for cells with matching data of course
It would be VERY useful on cases in which we need to compare data in several columns, where navigating the results with the keyboard would easily highlight matching data in other columns, instead of having to make custom queries like
Highlighting the same data in the whole result table (not only selected row/column) would be useful sometimes, but i guess it would be more 'expensive' to process and would be visually messy, so it is not that important. or maybe as a toggleable option?
